Set in 1933, the musical 42nd Street follows a cast directed by Julian Marsh (David L. Wygant) rehearsing to open the show "Pretty Lady." We join the show as the cast is about to meet their star performer, Dorothy Brock (Heather McClain) whose star and financial powers have secured her the lead role despite her inability to dance.  Through many different misunderstandings Ms. Brock is unable to perform and a new starlet, Peggy Sawyer (Lisa Kay Carter), is given a chance to shine.

With Joseph, which opened last night at Franklin's Jamison Theater inside The Factory at Franklin, further establishes its brand: presenting exceptional musical theater with production qualities that might rival Broadway, performed by a cast (a dreamcast, if you will) made up of actors from Nashville, New York and various and sundry points in between. The show's title role is entrusted to New York-based Jesse Michels, who oozes great charm and is fairly dripping in sex appeal which ensures the audience is riveted to his performance - but it's his gorgeous baritenor and prominent stage presence that makes certain this production of Joseph is so appealing and we daresay noteworthy.

"Funerailles d'Hiver" is a voyage into another world. A world where one can accept the existence of a soul gathering entity, a world in which a strong wind can take you from a beach to the highest tops of the Himalayas, a world in which people can: « defy space and time, remaining totally believable. »

When the audience arrives at American Players (APT) Up the Hill Theatre for the opening of William Shakespeare's King Lear, they might believe a presidential press conference will be staged. Green lawn expands into the audience, actors place contemporary white chairs in a distinct pattern and a glass podium greets the audience--and plenty of paparazzi appear to capture the King, the Duke of Gloucester and Duchess of Kent, and Lear's three daughters entering the lawn party. At night under the stars, the royal staging opens when the King appears announcing his 'retirement,' dividing his kingdom to his three progeny. Two dutiful daughters ascend to the podium pronouncing their love, while Cordelia speaks from the back row of chairs, the front of the Up The Hill Theatre. Goneril, Regan and Cordelia were 'dressed to kill', so to speak in sophisticated, fashion worthy coats and the appropriate fascinators, for English royalty, as were the men.This beginning places the audience firmly in a King Lear crafted for the current day, up to the very minute audiences.
